They have included two Wood Sandpipers, two Greenshank, Common Sandpiper, three Dunlin, Redshank and Yellow Wagtail.
In the main they have been stopping to feed at East Fen, where the water levels are just right so that decent areas of mud have been exposed. They only stop for a day or two and then continue their journey.
On the 31st of the month the sighting that I had been hoping for appeared, an adult Mediterranean Gull feeding two chicks.
This was a first for the reserve and fingers crossed that they will fledge in due course.
Weed, where the second pair are nesting, has grown considerably in the last week and has hidden the nest and birds from view, so I'm not sure if they have any chicks or not.
The Blue tit box in the garden had eleven chicks hatch but only three managed to fledge. Both parents were busy feeding the chicks all day, but I suppose that there wasn't quite enough food to go around.
